The Coveris manufacturing facility in Battle Creek, Michigan has received the highest level of certification from the Safe Quality Food Institute, Level 3, representing the company’s “comprehensive mastery of safety and quality management systems.” The facility earned Level 2 recognition in 2013.
The SQF Program, administered by the Food Marketing Institute, harmonizes the standards for food producer, manufacturers, distributors and brokers, meeting the diverse needs of everyone in the food industry “from farm to fork.” It is the only food safety program recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative. “Every day at the Battle Creek Facility, 165 Coveris employees are dedicated to enhancing the safety and quality of our partners’ products,” said Barry Fulcomer, the plant manager for Battle Creek. “Achieving this Level 3 certification is a remarkable recognition for how we extend our corporate commitment to these important measures every day.”
Coveris manufactures flexible packaging solutions for the consumer food sector at its Battle Creek facility, including printed form-fill-seals films for frozen foods, breakfast foods and coffee.
